Dust Free Roof Membrane in Knowle

After boarding out this loft, the owners wanted us to stop all the tile mortar and dust from falling onto their belongings. We pinned a breathable roof membrane to the inside of their roof. This is a good solution to reduce dust and debris in the loft when plaster boarding is not an option. 

This was done in a 3 bedroom, 1930s, semi detached house on Milverton Road, Knowle, B93.

Installing a Deluxe Bi-Folding Loft Ladder in Sutton Coldfield

This couple were after a really safe ladder that was easy to use. "We're not getting any younger". Their words not mine! 

However there was an obvious choice for them. Fakro build a fantastic wooden bi-folding loft ladder that is strong and effortless to use. The LWL has the standard extra wide foot steps and sturdy construction. But on this particular model they have added a second hand rail and a gas piston release mechanism. This allows the user to lower the ladder down with ease. The piston acts as a brake. In the unlikely event whereby you let go of the ladder in mid air, the ladder will not fall or hit you. Instead, it stops still and starts to retract. This feature is great for cautious users.

We installed this ladder so that the couple could access there photography collection easily from their studio.  

The job was done in a detached 1950's, 4 bed house on Grange Lane, Sutton Coldfield, B75.

Installing a Safety Fence / Hand Rail in Smethwick

This house had a very tall ceiling which meant that the loft ladder we installed didn't have much rail left at the top to hold onto when getting into and out of the loft. We custom built them a hand rail / fence around the hatch opening to provide a fixed point to hold.

We installed this in a terrace house on Bowden Road, Birmingham, B67

Floating a Frame Over Insulation in a Truss Roof Loft in Northfield

New build houses always have a lot more insulation in the loft as regulations have increased significantly over the years. It is now common to see a minimum of 270mm of insulation in the loft and often we see 400mm. The only way to keep this amount of insulation in place and intact when boarding out a section, is to float a frame over the top. It is very important not to squash down the insulation. You want to allow air to circulate so that moisture can escape.

We floated a timber frame 450mm over the ceiling joists and laid an 18mm tongue & groove chip board floor. 

This floor boarding job was done in a newly built house.

Relocating a Loft Hatch and Installing a Timber Bi-Folding Loft Ladder in Sheldon

This man wanted his hatch relocated onto his landing as his current hatch was very small and in his bathroom. Empire Lofts were able to complete this work in a couple of hours with no decorating necessary after the job was complete.

Relocating the hatch hole is often a great idea. In order to safely and easily get up into the loft with bulky items, you will need a good amount of space to access the ladder. Also, the better ladders need swing room and clearance on the landing and in the loft.

This job was done in a 3 bed, semi-detached house on Vibart Road, Sheldon, Birmingham, B26.

Floating Frame Over 420mm of Insulation and Fitting Boarding Down the Centre of Truss Roof in Leamington Spa

This lady wanted her loft boarded out but had a lot of insulation and the roofs internal structure was trussed, making it difficult to negotiate. We floated a frame above the insulation level with a robust system of joists, thus allowing the 420mm of insulation underneath it to sit without being squashed down and so it was able to breathe. This is really impotant to reduce the risk of condensation building up in the roof. We also installed a 3 stage Youngman Easiway loft ladder and custom hatch for easy access. 

This job was completed in a newly built, 4 bed detached house.

Fitting a Heavy Duty (Titan) Loft Ladder in Moseley

We fitted this in a 3 story 1900's town house, mid terrace on Runcorn road, Moseley, B12.

This is an example of fitting a wooden bi-folding loft ladder in a new built, 3 bed semi-detached house on Northumberland Way, Walsall, WS27.
